Healthy snacking throughout the year is challenging enough, but Passover takes it to a whole new level.
There are a few new certified kosher for passover healthy products available this year but I still find the majority of what’s out there to be full of unhealthy ingredients.
I’d like to share with you some of my favorite healthy packaged snacks plus give you ideas for quick on the go snacks and other homemade options.
*If you have questions about kashrut please consult your Rabbi or the various online Passover kashrut guides.
*Certifications can change year to year so always check packages.
Healthy Kosher For Passover Packaged Snacks (2018)
Sea Castle Roasted Seaweed Snacks – this is a new product this year. Made with only three ingredients: organic seaweed, organic olive oil, and sea salt. Available on Amazon but you will probably find better prices at your local kosher market.
Gefen Coconut Chips – made with coconut flakes, sugar, and cocoa powder.
You Love Fruit and Matt’s Munchies Fruit Leather – available for a couple of years, this is another whole food based packable snack
Landau and Terra Chips – they are both made with similar ingredients, both are non-GMO, but Landau uses palm oil and Terra uses safflower oil. Most Kosher for Passover certified chips use cottonseed oil which I don’t buy though Lays chips does have a Passover run and is made with palm oil. I’m still waiting for the day organic potato chips become kosher for passover!
Almond Butter and Cashew Butter – both available certified for passover. It’s expensive to buy so may be worth doing it yourself, but a time saver. Serve with apple slices and celery sticks for a quick snack.
Quick Healthy Passover Snack Ideas
Trail mix – make your favorite mix of nuts, dried fruit, chocolate chips, coconut flakes, etc…
Defrosted Frozen Blueberries – wild blueberries are one of the healthiest foods packed with phytonutrients and anti-oxidants. I buy tons of frozen wild blueberries and defrost them in mason jars to snack on all the time.
Healthy Passover Homemade Snacks
Granola – Homemade granola is super easy to make. Make this grain-free nutty granola and use that as your passover cereal or serve with yogurt.
Smoothies and Smoothie Bowls – keep your freezer stocked with frozen fruit for quick and healthy smoothies and smoothie bowls you can top with fresh fruit or homemade granola.
Almond Flour Muffins – almond flour muffins are so easy to make and require simple ingredients. Try these apple cinnamon muffins or replace the apples with blueberries or chocolate chips using the same recipe. I’m also experimenting with an egg-free version – hopefully can share that soon.
Almond Flour Waffles – I make a big batch of almond flour waffles right before passover to have in the freezer for the week for breakfast or snacks. I found having a separate passover only waffle maker more than worth the space and investment.
Chocolate Bark – so easy to make! Pour melted chocolate on a parchment lined sheet pan and sprinkle some nuts, dried fruit, coconut flakes or even some sea salt over the chocolate. Let it cool then break into snack size pieces.
Cut Up Veggies with Guacamole or my most requested Anchovy Dip or Dressing recipe (just 3 ingredients!) which we love using as veggie dip or Caesar Salad dressing.
Almond Milk – there’s finally a kosher for passover version but it’s full of unnecessary and unhealthy ingredients. There’s a few ways to make it yourself (usually blending almonds and water and then straining) – but my favorite and quickest is my instant almond milk.
Chia Seed Pudding – so easy to make. Just add 1/4 cup of chia seeds to 1 cup almond milk in a mason jar, add some sweetener, cocoa powder, cinnamon, or other spices, shake it up and leave it in the fridge overnight.
